Sylt Sylt in the Times of the Corona Pandemic XVIII

Sylt participates in the North Frisia model project.
Duration 01 May until 31 May 2021;
Extension possible until 30 June 2021

Guests can be accepted again.

We will participate and open on 1 May 2021.



Dear guests,
dear friends of the BENEN-DIKEN-HOF,
dear friends of the island of Sylt.


We are opening again – on 1 May 2021. At last. We are very happy.

Our guests can come again and enjoy holidays on Sylt and with us at BENEN-DIKEN-HOF.

How can that work? It’s actually quite simple: You only have to adhere to the specifications of the model test, essentially a high test frequency – one test every 48 hours – from the day of arrival. Test centres are set up all over the island for this purpose; the tests are free of charge. The use of the luca app is mandatory (see below).

All guests will receive an official consent form for participation in the model test with their reservation confirmation, which must be completed and signed by us in good time before their arrival.

Upon arrival / registration at the hotel reception or the reception of the holiday domiciles, each guest must present an original certificate of a negative Corona test, which must not be more than 48 hours old (it is best to send this additionally by e-mail or fax before arrival).

The tests are not required for children up to their 6th birthday. Guests with complete vaccination protection (i.e. with 2 vaccinations for the vaccines currently in use) do not have to take part in the tests during their stay on the island. Upon arrival, they must present their vaccination certificate filled out accordingly.

From the day of arrival onwards, every guest must visit one of the test centres every other day for a short test.

The motto is: test … test … test.

For further details on participation in the model project, please see the official form:

 >>> Guest’s consent to participate in the “Model Project District of North Frisia”.

As has been the case since the beginning of the pandemic, our “General Corona Protection Measures” continue to apply until further notice.

See you soon here with us at the beautiful BENEN-DIKEN-HOF in Keitum and on our wonderful island of Sylt. Everything is prepared for your coming.

We look forward to welcoming our guests.

Your hosts

Anja & Claas-Erik Johannsen and Johannes Welker

PS We and our staff also have to undergo regular tests every 48 hours as part of the model project.

We urge you not to check in if you feel ill or have had contact with a Covid-19 infected person. Despite the separator at reception, we also ask you to wear your mask at CheckIn and CheckOut.

Register with us using the luca app (see below). If you have not yet installed it on your smartphone / iPhone or are not yet familiar with it, we will be happy to help you. If you do not use a smartphone / iPhone, you will receive a luca dongle (as a key fob) from us, which you can use to conveniently check in and out of our hotel and other restaurants on Sylt.

Please refrain from making payments in cash if possible. You are also welcome to transfer money in advance. The current CheckIn / CheckOut times are: CheckOut by 10:00 am, CheckIn from 4:00 pm.



First of all, we all have to follow the hygiene rules. This means that you and we keep a distance of 1.5 – 2.5 m if possible, wear a mouth and nose protection (mask) in the public areas of the house (receptions in the hotel and for the holiday domiciles in the station, corridors in the hotel, toilets in the hotel, …), wash our hands regularly, use the disinfectants placed everywhere in the house.


Upon arrival, you will find your rooms / suites / flats / houses properly aired and disinfected. The minibar is not stocked on arrival; this can be done individually on request.

The contact restrictions of the state of Schleswig-Holstein apply to the occupancy of larger units.  They currently stipulate a maximum of 5 persons from a maximum of 2 households – not counting children under 14 years of age.



By placing the tables and seating groups we ensure the necessary distance between the guests.

House guests have direct access to the restaurant through their regular 48-hour trial. External guests (including visitors to our house guests) must present a test that is less than 24 hours old.

You now have to make reservations everywhere on the island – including with us. Because we have to be able to schedule you.

When visiting restaurants, please always check in at the table using the luca app. Your personal data will be recorded electronically, stored anonymously and can only be decoded by the responsible health authority for the purpose of tracing possible chains of infection.

When entering the gastronomic areas, please keep your masks on until you have taken your assigned seats; then remove the masks. Now you can breathe easy, talk, enjoy. We will take care of you and always provide fresh air. As soon as you rise from your table, please use your masks again.

The maximum number of people allowed per table at the time of your stay and their composition can be found out from our staff at reception or in the service area.

The Corona virus and the associated rules of conduct will stay with us for a long time – thus also the registration of our guests when visiting restaurants, at events and in many public areas in order to be able to trace possible chains of infection.
Against this background, hoteliers, restaurant operators, landlords, retailers and many other entrepreneurs on Sylt have decided to use a new, convenient and useful concept for registering contact details – luca.

luca is a software / an app for contact data registration. It is fully data protection compliant and enables a fast and complete tracing of infection chains
by the health authorities. Users can check in and out digitally at many places with the luca app or the luca dongle (key fob).


– is free of charge, the app is easy to use
– enables convenient digital registration without having to sign up for lists
– enables very fast tracking of infection chains by public health authorities
– offers complete data protection through the use of encryption

Wherever you need to register, check in with luca – it couldn’t be simpler and more
and more sensible.

Details can be found on the Internet at

We recommend: Download the app to your SmartPhone / iPhone before your arrival or order the free dongle (key fob).
